    Slow jigging

    Hi Graham, I have lots of gear which I have had some,varied,great, success with. When I have a boat again I will certainly slow jig as and when I go wrecking for COD,Pollock. It will also work drifting a bank for Bass for sure, but I would personally probably prefer to use a BFM in this situation. It is a brilliant method, and have caught everything from Wrasse in Alderney to Coalfish in Norway to Threshers and GTs in SriLanka. It’s great because you can use light gear. It is an art to do properly and much time has been wasted on you tube!!! and still not mastered!! I caught Cod,and Torsk,Coalfish,mega Mackerel on them on the Norway trip and masses of species on different trips. Virtually all fish can be caught on them, unfortunately the state of OUR fish stocks makes it more challenging. It really is worth persevering, how ever, I wasted quite a lot of money buying gear sold as slow jigging which was not. Visit Terry at Jigabite in Sussex, he will put you right😜 Have fun

    boat wanted

    Hi, i had the pilot 6 as my first boat and it was a really good sea boat for its size and build quality was really good. Had a small gel coatproblem and the builder sent me all necessary materials and instructions to correct it. Highly recommended 👍

    one bass a day from October

    Great news if correct guys, perhaps a ban on Plaice, Black Bream and other species would be a better idea?Thats the commercials I mean, everyone has to make a living but it’s getting ridiculous for the future, or am I over reacting????? More bass everywhere than anything else. Yes they are slow growing but being boatless this year and hearing and seeing what people are notcatching it’s very scary. From what I understand Brexit is not going to help the sea at all???

    Mike, you should be able to hire a flat bed car trailer and balance the hull using old tyres then ratchet strap it. It’s not an ideal situation but would do the job if you have some muscle to help you. Hope you sort it. Jerry

    Fixed Spool Reel

    I seriously have them on show in my man cave, some of the Nautilus and Stella’s are beautiful engineered bits of kit. But maybe I am sad!!!!! I don’t live and work by the sea like you Charlie😩

    Shellbay moorings

    I looked at them before I went to Cobbs, I think they are fairly well sheltered but depending what your after it’s all pretty basic, difficult to get to, and it’s out on a limb so security could be an issue.

    Course adventure

    Ahh Barbel, I used to fish at Claverton just outside of Bath on Bathampton Angler’s Association waters, best I had was 10lbs 1oz beating the great Ray Mumford record. Unfortunately I was meant to be revising for o levels at the time and either Barbel on the Avon or Tench on the canal stopped me studying 🤔🤔. I did an all nighter at West Bexinton last night, very disappointing so maybe Robs right, back to coarse fishing. Having said that two years ago fished Extremadura and had a brilliant week catching Barbel on dry fly to 8lbs, STUNNING. Hope to do Portugal on the rivers in the next few years. Sounds very good. Memories😀

    Dory type boat wanted

    Hi, There are various proper Dory’s on flea bay which look quite strait, if you are new to these boats make sure you check for hull damage regards water getting in, they can be a bag full of trouble. The 17ft is boat that will take you to a lot of places, you will be very limited with the 13ft. Hope this helps.
